Heh, heh! There's always a slight sense of frustration when a good rant produces a well reasoned response!

Oh, dear, how thoughtless of me! Would this be any better

How DARE you take away my social security?!? I paid it, they PROMISED I would get it, and I will HAVE it, by golly!! You are nothing less than a cur to compare ME to your DOG. Did your DOG vote you into the office of Bone Giver? Is your DOG smart enough to PAY social security? How can you compare a BONE to my SOCIAL SECURITY RIGHTS anyway? This is so much MORE important than your dog's bone, SP, and don't you forget it!!!
